My self-summary
I'm a CRNA and musician who just finished grad school in California and have returned to Austin, my hometown. Honestly, I feel a bit weird trying to write a bunch of flattering stuff about myself. If you think you might be interested, send a message. If I think I might be interested, I promise to respond.
What I’m doing with my life
I recently earned a master's degree in nurse anesthesia. I plan to spend my life working, traveling, and writing/recording/performing music. I like to fancy myself as an amateur astronomer. My friends sometimes get annoyed when I point up in the sky and announce things like, "Check out Jupiter!" I'm also a huge fan of hiking - one of the best days of my life was reaching the summit of Half Dome in Yosemite National Park.
I’m really good at
Songwriting. I'm a decent pool and chess player as well. I can also do a near-perfect Bob Dylan impersonation, but you may not want to hear it.
The first things people usually notice about me
That fresh, new car smell.

The six things I could never do without
Guitars, pool halls, friends, boots, kidneys. Most recently, my Fitbit Surge. This thing has changed my life!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why does one park in a driveway and drive in a parkway?
On a typical Friday night I am
Monitoring heart rhythms and oxygenation while titrating powerful hemodynamic drugs. Sometimes I go to a bar. I'm learning to 2-step.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like to sing in the shower.
